You should have your 1st-night location nailed down before you arrive. Some of our favorite campsites start with Lydgate Park. There is a lot of wave action here but that adds to the energy.` You can walk 3 miles in one direction on pristine sand and barley see a sole.
Located on the North shore, is Anini Beach Park. A very far out reef makes the water calm and waveless almost all the time. Good shell collecting, snorkeling, and kiteboarding. There are three state campgrounds that are open. One is Kokie which is up in the cold Waimea canyon area you can get your permit online. Another is a hike in only wilderness Park in Haena and the third is Polihale State Park. We don't allow the vans to go to Polihale, the roads are too treacherous. There are two private campgrounds, one called Kumu which is on the east side of the island on the beach it can be reserved online then there's the YMCA campground on the North shore that has to be reserved in person. The county campgrounds, there are seven of which three are closed. Permits are sold at the county building and in small towns around the island. If your plane is arriving here by 2 p.m. you will have time after the Camper orientation to go buy a permit. If you have any questions please visit our website at (https://www.mykauaicampervans.com/)
